  1. Now, it is enough to do any program under an umbrella of any organization. Why can’t you say only the word “resettled Bhutanese” in MA? When are you going to recognize the youths of the community? Have you checked the youths in your community are all doing well in their schools and jobs? In my opinion,in addition to honoring our beloved seniors, we need to focus on the manor issues of our younger generation.
